Using Curriculum-Based Measurement to Improve Achievement
Clarke, Suzanne
Principal, v88 n3 p30-33 Jan-Feb 2009
Response to intervention (RTI) is on the radar screen of most principals these days--finding out what it is, how it can improve teaching and learning, and what needs to be done to implement it effectively. One critical component of RTI that will require particular attention from principals is student progress monitoring, which is required in every tier of RTI. The most commonly used and well-researched method of monitoring progress is curriculum-based measurement (CBM). This article defines CBM, describes how it works, and cites its effects on the achievement of students with learning disabilities. (Contains 3 online resources.)
